    "dear mr goldberg, at the last elections disengagement was TOTALLY REJECTED BY THE ELECTORATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" - paul harris Sharon was elected Prime Minister of Israel to run the cabinet and government of that nation. There were MANY (may I shout occasionally as you shout often, paul?) Israelis who voted against Sharon, the Likud, and all of the fanatic right wing religious parties. There are a great many people in Israel who support disengagement. And, why do you consider the current government "unelected"? Odd, given the Knesset is composed of elected representatives of the Israeli people. Odder still that the government is a composed of a coalition of the two major and some minor parties. Do you have a clue paul? Or do you simply think that adding enough exclamation points makes your rant valid?
